I’m a born-and-raised Texan (now Coloradoan), living in Europe while I race bikes for Team Sunweb. I have a B.S. in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M collecting dust. I am husband to the world’s most amazing woman, a classical pianist, metalhead, bookworm, early-riser, coffee snob, cyclingnews.com contributor, and budding Twitter personality. I owe all of my success to my faith, my family, and my friends, and I hope to make you all proud.

Bio

Close

I spent my childhood in Texas, playing around on bikes. First it was BMX, then I shifted to mountain bikes. Then I started racing mountain bikes, followed soon after by road bikes. I spent my college years either riding, eating, sleeping, or working on my degree in Mechanical Engineering.

In 2010, a perfect storm of racing success, graduation, and my father’s surprise diagnosis of Stage-IV lung cancer spurred me on to chase my dream of becoming a professional cyclist.

I’m now in my sixth year of racing for Team Sunweb at the WorldTour level, and I’m having a blast. I’ve had the joy of helping Tom Dumoulin win the 2017 Giro d’Italia, have a silver medal from the 2018 World Championships TTT, and I won the stage 21 TT in the 2019 Giro d’Italia. I’ve raced the Vuelta a Espana, Giro d’Italia, and Tour de France, and now I’m one of the veterans on Team Sunweb with at least two more years on the clock. Let’s race!
